COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Recreation Activity Providers

Posted on 19.06.2020

After several weeks of edits, rewrites and feedback the new ‘COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Recreation Activity Providers’ has been APPROVED and is available for download from our COVID Safe Plans page and the Queensland Government website: Approved Industry COVID Safe Plans.

Please note the COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Education Providers has yet to be approved and is only available from the COVID Safe Plans page in DRAFT form.

The purpose of these COVID Safe Plans are to help the Queensland outdoor sector show the health authorities and the community that they operate sufficiently safely and can service more participants/customers than the baseline restrictions at each stage in Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions (the Roadmap).

The plans will be accessible for all organisations in Queensland outdoor sector to consider (regardless of membership of an industry peak body such as QORF). Organisations will need to modify their operational plans to show how within your operating environment you will achieve compliance with the protocols in the industry plan. We will assist with implementation of the plan, but each organisation is the expert regarding their own operating environment.

Any organisation undertaking activity in accordance with an industry plan must print, sign and display a Statement of compliance.

While the two plans, one for Outdoor Recreation Activity Providers and the other for Outdoor Education Providers are designed for specific user groups, they do not provide the complete solution for either group. For example, activity providers may also need to refer to the Queensland Tourism and Accommodation plan, while outdoor educators may need to refer to the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) Campgrounds plan.
